What: Ben’s Bells promote kindness and community involvement. Each week a person who makes Tucson better is “belled.”
Last week’s recipient: Martin Roth.
Nominated by: Tina Eubanks.
Why: Roth is a teacher and basketball coach at Sabino High School. Recently, a student came to freshman basketball team tryouts, however, he did not have athletic shoes to participate, Eubanks wrote in her nomination letter. Roth realized the student could play basketball and had the desire to succeed. So Roth bought the young man a pair of basketball shoes and he is now an active participant on the team, Eubanks wrote. “Coach Roth’s generosity and dedication to the Sabino High School community is an inspiration,” Eubanks wrote.
